COLNE Valley MP Kali Mountford is leading a fight by people in an isolated hamlet to restore an axed bus service.
People in Wilberlee, near Slaithwaite, had an hourly service throughout the day until a new timetable came into force last Monday.
Now, they have been left with only a ``school run" bus in the morning and another in the afternoon before an hourly service is operated in the evening.
Ms Mountford, who has taken up the issue with the First bus company, said: "Some elderly people rely on the Wilberlee service to get to Slaithwaite and Huddersfield to collect their pensions and to shop.
"They are effectively cut off by the lack of buses. I am deeply sympathetic to their plight.
"That is why I have called on First to restore an hourly service to Wilberlee throughout the day, pending a decision to introduce a taxi-bus service in the area."
Andrew Scholey, managing director of First in Huddersfield, said the company was looking at the situation.
He added: "What has happened is that the Passenger Transport Executive - Metro - was intending to introduce a taxi-bus service to link Slaithwaite with the hilltop places such as Wilberlee.
"Our understanding is that this would start in December and we gave eight weeks' notice at the end of November, believing the taxi-bus would have started by Christmas.
"Clearly this has not happened and the latest information from Metro is the taxi-bus service may not start until April.
"We are examining our options and seeing if we can change our services temporarily to cover Wilberlee again."
